PRESS QUOTES:
We first discovered 21-year-old singer-songwriter Lelia Broussard the way many people did: by checking out her cover of Beyonce’s “All The Single Ladies,” which garnered over two million views on YouTube. That led us to her excellent new album, Masquerade. -AMERICAN SONGWRITER
Her voice reminds us of both Jenny Owens Young and Jenny Lewis, but more in your face and edgy – we like it.-NYLON
